My night out make-up selection and outfit

Hello there!  We finally made it to the end of the busy week, finishing it off with the première of our new ballet.  One of the best things about premièring a new piece is dressing up to go to the after party.  These are the products I chose to bring with me to do my make-up with after the show.
As I was going to wear a black dress I decided I wanted to go with a bright red lip.  Perhaps that was also just another excuse to get out my new YSL glossy stain!

I brought the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm with me because I felt like my skin would need a treat after all the work and heavy stage make-up!  My skin is quite good at the moment so that's all I used on my face other than the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer which I used under my eyes.  I used my Models Own shading brush to blend that in as it's my favourite to use with this creamy concealer at the moment.

 I used theBalm Hot Mama blush because it's quite a bright coral/peach shade which I thought would work well with the bright red gloss stain to help stop the red lip colour from making me look washed out.  I also thought the gold shimmer in it would work well for a glamorous evening look!  I used my Models Own Powder Brush to apply it as it's nice and soft and good size for sweeping over my cheeks.
Evening Make-up
Because I was going to be wearing such a bold lip I wanted to keep my eyes fairly subtle so I went with the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze.  It's quite glossy but not too dark and I also lined the top of my eye with the Bourjours Liner Feutre in Ultra Black to give them more definition.
I used my newest mascara, L'oreal's False Lash Telescopic Mascara in Magnetic Black on my lashes and the Lumene Eyebrow Shaping Wax to keep my eyebrows in place.
Of course I finished it off with my newest favourite lip stick, the YSL Glossy Stain in Shade no. 9, which is just a really nice bright and glossy long lasting lip colour which I got lots of compliments on!

I've been wearing my Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh for the performances so I wanted to switch it up for the evening do.  I went with my other favourite, Prada Candy.  To me it's a perfect rich, warm and sweet winter evening scent.
Outfit post
I wore this dress I got from ASOS a couple of years ago.  I've been really feeling black and lace since the weather turned and this dress is black, lace and velvet with some racy inserts cut out!  The front is actually see through but the lace is so busy it isn't too obvious.  I wore it with my favourite black Guess heels with a gold zip up back.

So that's my make-up and outfit selection.  I had a good night and felt very autumnal in my gothic glam dress and my red lips.  I've been having to chill out today to try to re-cooperate after one too many Bacardi raspberry and lemonades (my new favourite drink)!  One to many is basically two drinks for me as I'm a total lightweight!  I hope you've had a chilled cosy Sunday too :)

till next time
